Welcome to my art world on this newly redesigned site!
My old site had just about everything I’ve ever created – including many things that have long since been sold. You can still see some of the things people have collected – click here or on the ‘in collections’ tab.
But because I range so widely, people were getting lost in the old site. And it was hard to update. I hope this is better and I invite your comments – positive and negative.
For those of you who are new to my work – I operate principally in two media – acrylics/multimedia on canvas and handbuilt clay sculpture. I teach clay sculpture for a living.
At the core of my soul, I’m a dancer – I’m a former professional ballet dancer and I have an intense love and knowledge of ballet and modern dance. You’ll see movement expressed in many of my works, especially the paintings. To see what I mean, click here or on the ‘movement’ tab under paintings.
My sculpture is also fluid, but it’s tends more toward the figurative and literal than the abstract, though I make plenty of abstract clay pieces.
Right now I’ve put up on the site some 3-pointed idols I made from my memory of Taino archeological finds near my childhood home in the Dominican Republic. Click on the ‘idols’ tab above. My tropical upbringing will also explain to you my vivid painting palette!
And before I get back to work – just a word of thanks to my husband, Joe Neel, who helps me out by photographing my work and putting this website together. We frequently open my home studios in Washington, DC to visitors, just email Peter +at= RomeroArt =dot+ com for an appointment.
Please let us know what you think!
